This is Photographers (my) Guide for Buying Cameras and Accessories: best cameras based on my experience, the coolest and valuable lenses, and my daily life budget.

Canon Digital Mirrorless Cameras – my current camera is Canon R6. It’s the best!

The next models are for those who prefer Full-Frame mirrorless cameras.

There are two bodies to choose from for beginners, amateurs, and those who want to stay on a budget to buy a good camera. Meanwhile, Rp is more affordable, with almost the same functionality.

Detailed comparison to know what’s the real difference. Some of my clients have bought Rp and are happy with it. Canon Rp Review, Canon R review

Canon EOS RP & R Full Frame Mirrorless.

 

Buy Canon RP & Buy Canon R

The ultimate full-frame camera is a new Canon EOS R6. Canon has done an incredible job of catching up with Sony in the mirrorless camera branch – they succeeded. The R6 is almost perfect and the most powerful body on the market for professional photographers.

Canon EOS R6 Full-Frame – The winner

Buy Canon R6 or R6 with the lens.

Let start with the multi-purpose budget lens. Yes, it’s darker than it might be. The aperture is 4.0 only. Not so dreamy, but in a reasonable budget and an original lens. The review.

a. Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L

Buy Canon 24-105 F4

 

b. Canon Rf 24-70mm 2.8  & Canon Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L

 

Ultimate multifunctional zoom lenses from Canon. Yes, these are the best. The main difference is the aperture 2.8 vs. 2.0. With the highest aperture comes a larger size and weight. So no other cons except the price and weight only. Both lenses are not cheap at all. I tried Canon Rf 24-70mm 2.8 and loved it so much! The reviews you can find here and here.

 

Buy Canon RF 24-70 2.8   & Buy Canon RF 24-70 2.0

A must-have for artists and people who adore the best of the best. A Dreamy iconic 50 mm lens. Expensive, powerful, gorgeous! The review.

c. Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

 

Buy Canon 50 mm 1.2 RF.

d. If you are looking for something wider, take a look at Canon 35 mm. Aperture 1.8is good enough to photograph in the dusk. The lens is not heavy. The price is affordable. You can use this lens for portrait, landscape, and city photography—the review.

Buy Canon 35 mm 1.8 RF.

Sony Digital Mirrorless Cameras.

As a former Sony Photographer, I recommend you buy a Full-Frame mirrorless camera with an incredible performance with unique Eye detection and face recognition focus systems. Both cameras are professional and have some minor differences in functions and durability.

Sony a7III Full-Frame Mirrorless is a perfect camera in-affordable budget. Powerful, compact, and practical.  Here you can find a detailed review. The official page is on Sony’s web page.

 

Buy Sony A7III

Sony Alpha A9 II Full-Frame Mirrorless is the next generation – ultimate performance, with a higher level of performance and endurance. I highly recommend the camera for photojournalists, professionals, and people who used to buy the best only.

Buy Sony A9 II

I used both cameras in my professional and daily life. Spectacular performance, compact sizes along with powerful lenses make the process easier. You will enjoy and love working with mirrorless cameras. It makes all the difference when you’re traveling long distances when the camera’s weight makes all the difference.

Some additional gear to buy:

The charging battery kit with two batteries is a budget option.

Powerextra Replacement Sony NP-FZ100 Battery – The kit is good enough. The charger is a must-have gear, works with replicas and original sony Rechargeable Batteries.

SONY LENSES – buying a camera body is the first step. What’s the next one? The lenses!

a. Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 for Sony Mirrorless Full Frame E Mount. Why Tamron? I haven’t seen such a unique lens for decades! It’s compact, cheap, has a great picture to provide, and has a 2.8 aperture! The lens is much more affordable and lighter than an original Sony 24-70 2.8. A great lens to buy for portraits, landscape, and photojournalist photography. A must-have for all Sony photographers! Check the details in the review. 

 

Buy Tamron 28-75 2.8

Mac computers have become a golden standard in performance, high-quality displays, and incredible user experience. Switching from windows sometimes might be tricky. I used to Mac for three months and loved it for many years. Below you can find two laptops, different performance/budget, and prepuces. MacBook Air is smaller and has fewer ports, while MacBook Pro is an Ultimate solution for Pros. With these laptops, you can work everywhere, literally!

4. Sony WH-1000XM4 as good as Mine XM3. The main difference is supporting 2 Bluetooth devices at the same time. Can’t imagine my life without them. The headphones allow getting rid of the sound while flying on plain or working in the cafe. The sound quality is one of the best.
